Book Description The Beagle Press, Sydney, 2004. Hard Cover. Condition: Fine. Dust Jacket Condition: Fine. First Edition. Foreword by Edmund Capon. Numerous colour illustrations throughout (137 colour plates, plus many documentary photographs). Four chapters/sections as follows: Beginnings; Europe & London; Sydney - New York; Home. Includes an interview with Michael Johnson, biographical notes, exhibitions, collections, bibliography, plus list of plates. From inner front flap of dustjacket: "Michael Johnson himself has said that his paintings are not to be viewed, or at least not to be viewed and considered in the interpretive way, but to be explored and even assaulted. In that sense his paintings are, quite simply, not so much a visual experience but one that equates more with the experience of music and drama. If we submit to his demonstrative invitations and take the plunge we are gradually consumed by the rich embrace of his paintings. Beneath those threading, sometimes rambling, sometimes emphatic, lines of unrestrained untainted colour, moves a convulsive world heaving with layers of paint that are rich with experience and resonant with emotion. So writes Edmund Capon in the Foreword to this much awaited first book on the work of one of Australia's most important painters. For the first time we are given the opportunity to appreciate the full extent of Johnson's achievement over four decades, and enter more deeply the motivation and ideas behind his work". Bound in original black boards with red lettering to front board & spine, in publisher's unclipped pictorial dustjacket, blue endpapers. A very nice clean tight solid hardcover copy. 204pp. Large volume. Scarce. SB-124. Size: 29.5 x 29cm. Seller Inventory # 009304
